I knew that elves and dark elves were Norse (while the fae are Celtic), but I didn't know about the rest (or the names of the various days. In my language, they come from various celestial bodies--namely, the moon, the sun and some of the planets in the Solar System. For example, Monday="Lunedì"="giorno della Luna"=day of the Moon. In fact, I thought that Monday was a shortened version of Moonday).
Also, the comic was hilarious, thanks for sharing.
Sorry for the delayed reaction, holidays and I didn't realize you'd replied. Wow! I never knew that about Monday/Lunedi. Crap, maybe I'm wrong and it is Moonday...shoot. I thought about the fact that the days might be different in your language and decided to just share what my Anglicised perspective was, as I was hoping you might share
I looked up the other days of the week in Italian, but there is no info on their etymology. What do the other days mean?
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday again.
